I’m a travelholic, I admit. But this weekend, I actually stayed in town. That left time to act like a tourist in sunny Chicago. On Sunday, I went to the the Lincoln Park Conservatory, The Chicago History Museum, and Lincoln Hotel for a drink at The J. Parker.
The Lincoln Park Conservatory:
This paradise under glass was built in the late 1800s. Room after room is categorized and filled with different plants. It’s steamy, beautiful, and overwhelming to think how many plants there are in the world that most of us have never laid eyes on before.
The Chicago History Museum:
I’ve been wanting to visit this museum for a while, and a groupon finally motivated me to action. It was definitely worth it. The museum is filled with old Chicago memorabilia, including train cars and an engine! It’s always interesting to dive into a city’s past.
The J. Parker:
It’s a pretty snazzy joint. You can see the entire Chicago skyline from the rooftop bar. The upside of begrudgingly paying $14 for a drink is all the sights you can see. I prefer to see that high price as an admittance fee to a cool rooftop, and I feel a little better about it.
What I wore:
Nike Air Max with Liberty of London print, Goorin Brothers hat, Target skirt, BDG top, Anthropologie Watch, and a Gap sports bra
Love the Chicago Fire diorama
Isn’t that cool?! there were a lot of the dioramas, but the fire was by far the coolest. thanks!

Nice hat. Definitely, Chicago style.
At least they could’ve given the glass away for free with the drink. 😉
